For years Francesca Campanile was the queen of her home, dispensing good food and sound advice in her Rhode Island kitchen. But now, her children have moved away, and without a family to pester, annoy, guide, love, and, of course, cook for, widowed Francesca feels useless. When she sees Loretta Simmons's ad for a part-time nanny, Francesca is sure she's found the answer. All the single mom wants is someone to fill in for a few hours a day, but it's obvious to Francesca that Loretta and her kids need more--a lot more. It's time for Francesca to work her magic, and the best place to start is the kitchen...Pezzelli, Peter is the author of 'Francesca's Kitchen', published 2006 under ISBN 9780758213273 and ISBN 0758213271.
